Thread: So I went back to that jewelry store again.

  1. #1

    So I went back to that jewelry store again.

    And they made me an offer that my wife couldn't refuse. Tissot T-Lord Classic





    The dial is not black. It is more of a smoke colour.

    That is a very elegant looking watch. I especially like the combo of dauphine hands, indice shape, recessed sub dials and that case shape.... Nice pick up!

    What models?

    There's at least one decent Rado dealer in Calgary. I bought this for my wife there:

    I am really hoping to find a Diamaster Grande Seconds while on vacation.

    I was quite surprised by it when I first spotted it, tried it on a while back and liked it.

    7753 and a surprisingly small wearing 42mm. The only reason I tried it on in the first place was to prove to myself that it was too big, but...

    It wears smaller than my 42 mm round Eterna.

    Oh, no. My wife couldn't refuse the offer for me. I was going to leave it since I hope to be watch shopping in Montreal next week. She said "If you don't buy it, you'll regret it."
